Tortilla Soup

For Christmas, my inlaws gave me a "Big Book of Soup" there are like a billion soup recipes in there! (and a crock pot section!!!!)

Last night, I searched the pantry and found all the ingredients to make Tortilla Soup

It was good and easy and fairly low calorie!

Here's the recipe

1 can refried beans
1 can drained/rinsed black beans
1 can chicken broth
1.5 cups frozen corn
1/2 cup water
1 cup salsa(it originally called for 3/4, but I kicked it up a notch!)
1 cup shredded or diced chicken (i had some leftover chicken, and I also put in one can of chicken)

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
tortilla chips

stir the first 7 ingredients into a pot, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, let simmer(covered) for 10 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of cheese and let melt.

Crush up some chips and put in the bottom of the bowl. Top with soup. Garnish with cheese and a few more chips.

DEEEEEELLISH! And super easy.

And it was approved by a certain 6 year old who asked if we could eat it again tonight!
